Talbron Tewn can be found in House Cannith near the Marketplace Entrance.

New Enhancement Tree: Eldritch Knight[edit]

A new Enhancement Tree, Eldritch Knight, is now available for Sorcerers and Wizards! Abilities in this enhancement tree will help the battle-hungry caster empower their weapons with arcane energies.

Reincarnation Updates[edit]

Reincarnation has been updated and new types of reincarnation are now available, including Iconic True Reincarnation and Epic Reincarnation! Hall of Heroes, available to all players in both Forgotten Realms and Eberron, is now home to the Life-Shaper, your friendly new Reincarnation Guide!

  • The entrance to the Eberron Hall of Heroes is in The Marketplace beneath the bridge to the West of the entrance to The Subterrane.
  • The entrance to the Forgotten Realms Hall of Heroes is North of the Eveningstar Well.
  • Kruz has reincarnated, ascending into a higher existence, so you won’t be able to find him at his normal location in House Jorasco. Swinging by his place in House J directs you to the location of the new Reincarnation Guide instead.

Heroic True Reincarnation[edit]

This type of reincarnation remains primarily unchanged, with the exception of the following additions:

  • When generating your new character, you can choose between any classes or Iconics available to you.
    • If you choose a Non-Iconic Class, you will start at level 1.
    • If you choose an Iconic, you will start at level 15.
      • Note: Iconic Cosmetic Armor will appear in your Reincarnation Cache when Reincarnating into an Iconic.
  • Heroic True Reincarnation is not available for characters currently on an Iconic life. Iconic characters use Iconic Reincarnation instead.

Iconic True Reincarnation[edit]

This type of reincarnation is only available for characters currently on an Iconic life.

  • You must be at the level cap (currently level 28 as of Update 20, but eventually will be level 30) in order to Iconic True Reincarnate.
  • Grants +2 build points up to 36.
  • You gain an Iconic Past Life Feat.
    • This stacks up to 3 times.
  • You gain a Class-based passive Heroic Past Life Feat.
    • This stacks up to 3 times.
  • You gain access to a Class-based active Heroic Past Life Feat.
    • This requires using a Feat slot.
  • You lose all quest progress, including Favor, Raid completions, and Quest completions.
  • You do not lose Epic Destiny experience.
  • When generating your new character, you can choose from any Iconic or class available to you.
    • If you choose a Non-Iconic Class, you will start at level 1.
    • If you choose an Iconic, you will start at level 15.
      • Note: Iconic Cosmetic Armor will appear in your Reincarnation Cache when Reincarnating into an Iconic.

Epic Reincarnation[edit]

Epic Reincarnation is available to both Iconic and Non-Iconic characters.

  • You must be at the level cap (currently 28, eventually 30) to Epic Reincarnate.
  • You must have enough Karma in one Epic Destiny Sphere to spend on your Epic Reincarnation.
    • You gain Karma for an Epic Destiny Sphere (Arcane, Divine, Martial, or Primal) when you gain experience and have any Epic Destiny from that Sphere active.
      • You can view your Karma by toggling to the Map View in the Epic Destinies UI.
    • You will not lose Karma from other, unselected, Epic Destiny Spheres.
    • To introduce Karma, your existing Epic Destiny experience is applied to Karma for each Sphere. This will only apply when logging in to U20 for the first time.
      • For example: If you have 1 million XP in Exalted Angel and 2 million XP in Unyielding Sentinel, your Divine Karma would be 3 million.
      • If you have any Epic Destinies with max experience, the corresponding Karma will also be maxed.
  • You retain your Epic Destiny progress.
  • You gain an Epic Past Life Feat.
    • The Karma you spend will determine which Epic Past Life Feats are available for you to choose from.
      • For example: Spending Arcane Karma allows you to select an Arcane Epic Past Life Feat.
    • This stacks up to 3 times.
  • You earn one extra Fate Point for every four Epic Past Lives you gain.
  • You do not lose quest progress, including Favor, Raid completions, and Quest completions.
  • You do not lose Epic Destiny experience.
  • After Epic Reincarnating, you return to Level 20
    • You retain your Race and Class Levels.
    • You will spend a few minutes in Character Generation and then talk to the Life-Shaper – much like a Lesser +0 Reincarnation.

Other Reincarnation Types[edit]

  • Lesser Reincarnation remains primarily unchanged.
  • The functionality of Greater Reincarnation has been incorporated into Lesser Reincarnation.
  • Lesser Reincarnation is available to both Iconic and Non-Iconic characters.

    • There are three total reincarnation timers:
      • Lesser Reincarnation: Now only used by LR, since Greater Reincarnation functionality has been folded into Lesser Reincarnation.
      • True Reincarnation: This is used by Heroic True Reincarnation and Iconic True Reincarnation.
      • Epic Reincarnation: Used only by Epic Reincarnation.
    • This does mean you can perform an Epic Reincarnation immediately followed by Heroic True Reincarnation.

Hearts of Wood[edit]

  • Commendations of Valor are a Bound to Character currency which fit in the Ingredient Bag. If you remove the Commendations of Valor from your ingredient bag and doubleclick on them, a shop interface will open in which you can spend your Commendations of Valor for the following rewards:
    • Potion of Insightful Ability (+2) (Bound to Account)
    • Potion of Spellpower (+25) (Bound to Account)
    • Potion of Prowess (+2) (Bound to Account)

The XP curve while leveling has been adjusted.
